Installing → Installation Guide → Source Installation Guide

Install Source Package

$ tar zxvf xdmod-appkernels-x.y.z.tar.gz
$ cd xdmod-appkernels-x.y.z
# ./install -prefix=/opt/xdmod

NOTE: The installation prefix must be the same as your existing Open XDMoD installation. These instructions assume you have already installed Open XDMoD in /opt/xdmod.

Copy Configuration Files

# cp /opt/xdmod/etc/cron.d/xdmod-appkernels /etc/cron.d/xdmod-appkernels

The directory where this file is needed may differ depending on your operating system.

Run Configuration Script

# /opt/xdmod/bin/xdmod-setup

There should be a new section titled “Application Kernels” in the list. Select that option and provide the required information. Specifically, you will need to enter database credentials to access the databases created by AKRR and the AKRR REST API credentials.

NOTE: It is also possible to manually modify /opt/xdmod/etc/portal_settings.d/appkernels.ini.

Ingest Data From AKRR

If one or more jobs have been submitted by AKRR and completed, you may ingest that data:

$ /opt/xdmod/bin/xdmod-akrr-ingestor -v -l load

See the Application Kernels Ingestor Guide for more details.

Check Open XDMoD Portal

After successfully installing and configuring the application kernels package you should check the Open XDMoD portal to make sure everything is working correctly. By default, the application kernel data is only available to authorized users, so you must log into the portal. After logging in there should an additional tab visible named “App Kernels”.
